always a soulful christmas
I'm heading down to Velvet Elvis today for the annual adding of the Christmas 45s to the bar's vinyl juke box.
In amongst the pop festive favourites I sprinkle some soul and funk seasonal tunes.
They're on today's Funky Cuts Playlist along with some previously unissued Dan Penn cuts and some Blues tunes I picked up at the weekend.
Sixty minute s of Blues, Funk and soul on its way.

getting down and funky with some soul and r&b
After last week's Motown extravaganza I thought I should dig out some R&B and soul tunes I haven't played before or in a while. It will include a couple of recent Memphis tunes featuring the voices of Spencer and Percy Wiggins. It will of course be sixty minutes of mostly funky cuts and maybe a Northern Soul tune.
I shall be in action this weekend at the Ad Lib 111 Hope Street from nine till three with Trevor Bond playing some funky soul tunes. Free entry responsibly priced drinks coffee and street food available and a fine wooden dance floor.

new day new time
After spending this month's record purchasing budget on some new releases I discovered to my horror that Universal were releasing new set of 45s called Motown 7s Box Rare and unreleased. I think the unreleased refers to unreleased on 7" vinyl. I'll detail my doubts out on the show alongside a couple of new releases from Memphis and some suggestions for the next Box set.

I was in Carlisle and Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and found some good records some in a charity shop but others in a traditional second hand shop not far from Carlisle station.
They're in the mix alongside some stuff I found in the vaults as well as a few tunes which have not been spun in a while.
